Penzance at Mounts Bay is a small, pretty resort at the "entrance" to the English Channel. Here you can fully experience the rustic charm of south-west England on long walks along the beach or through the pretty old town. Particularly popular are the holiday cottages close to the beach, but of course you can also spend your holidays here in apartments or apartments - according to your wishes and requirements.

Top 3 travel tips
Penzance is one of the few towns in the southwest of England with a really beautiful, classic beach promenade. It stretches over about one and a half kilometres and is lined with breathtaking Victorian houses (some of which have been converted into holiday homes), a fair and of course numerous restaurants and some hotels. The beach is mostly a pebble beach, but there are also some smaller beach sections where you can swim.2. A stroll through Chapel Street
Pirates? In Penzance? At least you can believe it when you visit the pub Admiral Benbow, because this is where the legendary story "Treasure Island" begins. But Chapel Street is also lined with quaint pubs and unique little shops, through which you can browse for hours. And in the adjacent parks you will even find palm trees due to the mild climate - maybe a pirate's treasure is buried under one?3. A visit to Mousehole
Just under 5 kilometres from Penzance lies the Mauseloch Mousehole, probably the prettiest fishing village in Mount Bay. Its small fishing port in the centre of the village is today also used by yachts and the winding alleys lead you to the original Mouse-Hole, a small cave in a cliff at the foot of the mountain where the fishing village is located.
